West Coast superstar Josh Kennedy on track for round one following post-season surgery

Star West Coast forward Josh Kennedy is confident of being available for round one despite having post-season shoulder surgery.
Kennedy has battled a raft of injuries in recent seasons but still been one of the AFL’s dominant forwards.
He will resume contact training with the main group next week and has his mind set on playing in the pre-season.
“I’ll be pretty good for JLT,” he said.
“We’ve got an intraclub coming up around that time as well. I’m hoping to be ready for that.”
Kennedy missed the first three games of last season due to ankle surgery but still kicked five goals in his first match.
Kennedy played 14 games and booted 43 games, including nine during the finals series.
The veteran said he was way ahead of where he was at this point last year.
“It’s been really good that it’s nothing to do with feet or legs,” Kennedy said.
“I’ve been able to do more running. It’s been good.
“I’m well ahead of where I was last year.”
Kennedy is hoping to get through 2019 unscathed in what would be his first full season since 2016.
He kicked 82 goals that year and won the Coleman Medal.
